China's e-commerce giant JD.com has launched robot deliveries in Beijing's Haidian district, reports zjol.com.cn.
Various automatic delivery vehicles were formally put into service on June 18, 2018 after a trial run. The largest vehicle is able to carry 30 parcels at once.
The driverless vehicles operate at a top speed of 15 kilometers per hour. JD.com says their vehicles are able to avoid any barriers on the road, and also adhere to the traffic lights.
Customers will receive an instant message to pick up their delivery. Customers can choose to accept their packages by either facial recognition, passwords or via JD.com's mobile app.
